Q:

Does God still do miracles, like He did in biblical times? If He does, why doesn't He do more of them? Maybe more people would believe in Him if He did.


A:

God is not limited, and He is certainly able to work in miraculous ways today just as He did in biblical times, if He so chooses. If He didn’t, why would we bother to pray when a loved one falls ill or God’s work is opposed by evil forces?

At the same time, much of what God does in the world is hidden from us. Think, for example, of the work He has given His angels to do on our behalf. Occasionally they may make their presence known, but for the most part, they’re hidden from us, and only in heaven will we understand how they protected us or delivered us from danger. Much of what they do could be labeled as miracles. The Bible says, “Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation?” (Hebrews 1:14).

Would more people believe in God or in Christ if they saw a miracle? Not necessarily. Countless people saw Jesus perform miracles, yet they refused to believe in Him or give their lives to Him. Don’t let this be true of you!

The greatest miracle of all, however, is the miracle of a changed life — and this can happen, as we open our hearts and lives to Christ. Do others see Christ in you — His love, His compassion, His purity, His joy? Make sure of your commitment to Christ, then ask Him to change you from within by His Holy Spirit, and make you a living witness to the miracle of His transforming power.

    I ask you father to please forgive me for my sins. I want to thank you for all of my blessings. I thank you for my mother, for my family, for my friends, and for the roof over my head Lord. I asked that you would watch over my mother and her husband and bless them give them strength Lord, give them faith to know that their lives are in your hands. Please allow my mom’s husband to come to know you as our Lord and Savior and my grandpa as well. Thank you for your mercy and grace Lord. I just asked that you will watch over me and my mother and my family and her husband and just bless us Lord Jesus and protect us and our family and keep us guarded with the armor of Jesus Christ. Give us hope to know that all of our problems are in your hands, amen.
